Wolf PACK Pride


Ramirez prides itself on our PACK expectations. These attributes form the expectations of students and adults at Dr. Augustine Ramirez Intermediate School. We are Proactive: we think ahead and take initiative. We show Accountability: We hold ourselves and others to our commitments. We demonstrate Community: we are a group of people united together to function and work as one. We act upon Kindness: we help and care for others without expecting anything in return.


When we as a school community practice these core values daily, then our group as a whole becomes stronger. Parents we invite you to join us in supporting your student in practicing wolf PACK Pride!


"For the strength of the PACK is the wolf and the strength of the wolf is the PACK."



~Mrs. Douglas
